Dr. Tania Dempsey and Dr. Lawrence Afrin have joined forces to create a new, state-of-the-art medical institute focused on diagnosis, treatment, research and education regarding multi-system diseases, including mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS). Together, Drs. Afrin and Dempsey will work to create an independent organization to advance care, research, and education regarding this disease, and to serve the needs of patients with suspected and proven MCAS.

Dr. Dempsey’s interest in mast cell activation and it’s connection to chronic disease began back in 2013 when she identified her first patient with mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS). Since then, she has identified that over 75% of her patients have this syndrome. Understanding how mast cells play a role in many chronic disease states, including pain syndromes, autoimmune diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders and the systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment will be the focus of her presentation.
